Location of 1911 and 1901 census returns brick wall

Postby Jules77 » Tue May 05, 2020 12:48 pm

Hello everyone,

If possible I am looking for some help/guidance in locating the 1911 and 1901 census returns from more advanced family researchers please. I’m only a beginner with regards to researching family history and I’ve been searching for days on end now, trying different ways to search, to no avail.

The family I am trying to locate are as follows :-

Harry Bunn, born 1902, Kings Norton, Warwickshire/Worcestershire. He married Doris Lilian Minett, in 1924, Worcester, Worcestershire. Doris Lilian Minett, was born 1904, Martley, Worcestershire. I cannot find the 1911 census for Harry Bunn.

Possible Parents for the above Harry Bunn are as follows :-

Harry Bunn, born abt 1872, Aston, Warwickshire. He married Amelia Elizabeth Warrillow, in 1895, Aston, Warwickshire. Amelia Elizabeth Warrilow, was born 1 March 1872, Birmingham, Warwickshire. Again I cannot find the 1901 and 1911 census for this family.

Any help with regards to the above would be very much greatly appreciated as I really have hit a brick wall on this. Thank you in advance.

Best wishes to all,

Julie

What was Harry sr's and Amelias occupations? Is he a Wire mat worker and she a shop keeper?

Did they have chidren May, Amelia, Harry, Harold and Reginald?

If they sound right, they are down as Bourne in 1901 and 1911.
